Santa Count Down 2012!

Product Details We are gearing up for the Jolly ol' Elf to Visit! We read "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement C. Moore and Richard Jesse Watson, sang the "Lion Hunt" song and then made our very own countdown Santa calendars. Kids will use these by filling in Santa's beard with a cotton ball every day in December until it's the Night Before Christmas. Check out some of their work. I am pretty sure the glitter was the hit of the project.

So I fixed comment allowances...

Hello Artmommie readers! It finally dawned on me that people were unable to comment unless they also had a blog. Well it is FIXED now so ANYONE can comment. Sorry it took me a year to realize this:) Please do comment on our post. The children really love seeing their work on the blog and we have found it a good vehicle to share our ideas. Many thanks, Sherri

Turkey Time!

We had 2 classes today! First class was Mommy and Me where we made circular turkey hand print decorations. The second class, Parents and Kids, we made a festive turkey napkin holder also with our hand print. Kids enjoyed singing the Lion Hunt and listening to 2 books about Turkeys and Thanksgiving. They were "Down on the Farm" by Merrily Kutner and "Thank You, Thanksgiving" by David Milgrim. The materials we used were watercolor, acrylics, cut paper, sequins, tp roll, popsicle spoon, scissors, glue and paper.
